I was born in Cerritos, California and was raised in the Los Angeles/Orange County area. I knew that I wanted to be a veterinarian since I was in the 8th grade. For my undergraduate career, I attended Cal Poly Pomona and received a Bachelor Degree in Animal Science. During college I worked as a veterinary assistant for a few years at a small animal hospital here in Orange County. A year later, I attended Ross University School of Veterinary Medicine for my first 3 years of veterinary school, and then headed to Colorado State University to complete my clinical rotations, eventually receiving my DVM degree. I am so thrilled to come back to Orange County and become a part of the Newport Harbor Animal Hospital family! When I'm not at work, I enjoy spending time with my furry family (2 dogs 3 cats), hiking, time at the beach, and of course eating good food. I also love sports, including baseball and football. I really look forward to meeting, caring for and creating a lasting bond with you and your pets.
